our first harvest

A wet spring has left us a bit behind in the garden though this first harvest gives us hope! We made a garlic scape pesto to put on grilled fish and toasted bread. We'd be remiss if we didn't mention the leek moth damage we're seeing on these alliums. This pest is relatively new to VT and loves to burrow into our garlic and onion bulbs, introducing disease and shortening the storage life of these pantry essentials. The leek moth flies by night and covering this crop with remay in the evening helps to deter the little bugger.
